We descend to Ait Ben Haddou, one of the geological wonders of this planet, which has lasted for millenniums. It looks as if it were a separate universe. We will visit a great fortress that has served as the setting for famous films like "Lawrence of Arabia", "Gladiator" and "The Jewel of the Nile." It consists of several building structures; it is thought that ocher was mixed with clay over what was once dry land on which a great river flowed. Today it is fertile ground.
